Superbe mise en valeur de l’abbaye magnifiquement restaurée, avec des présentations multimédia ...
The Royal Abbey of Eleanor of Aquitaine In the heart of a Small City of Character, the abbey of Nieul-sur-l'Autise is an architectural gem of exceptional quality, highlighted and managed by the department of the Vendée. Founded in 1068, the abbey was granted the status of royal abbey in 1141 by Aliénor of Aquitaine, then Queen of France. The abbey retains one of the few almost intact Poitevin monastic ensembles with its three elements including the only Western Romanesque cloister preserved in its entirety. A millenary abbey at the forefront of technology Embark on a virtual tour of the abbey and discover the monastic life in the 12th century through touch screens, a museum tour on Romanesque sculpture and a medieval instrumentarium. In summer: shows about the history of the abbey, fun route and costumed tours. All year long: activities and children's activities, adventure books.

"Magnifique et animation multimédia très réussies" David S Period of stay : October 2018
Superbe mise en valeur de l’abbaye magnifiquement restaurée, avec des présentations multimédia qui ravissent petits et grands (par ex. visite virtuelle de l’abbaye en déplaçant son personnage avec un joystick)

This date is wrong... I came many, many years Ago, with my friend Teresa, probably about 2005... The dating on this website doesn’t allow me to go back that far... I was stunned and excited by the very tasteful way the abbey had been restored and wonderful glass floor on the upper landing, and the musical instruments then on show depicting the sounds emanating from the instruments made by local craft men which when the light beam was trodden on, the music of angels and daemons played around the room... It was magical... I am an English, creative contemporary textile artist and was on a workshop with a local textile artist who brought us here. This prompted an important set of creative work for me. The experience has stayed with me ever since and will never leave me.
